Film: Andre Gregory-Before and After Dinner

July 3, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Innovative theater director, sometime movie actor, and one of the world’s great raconteurs, 78-year-old Andre Gregory is still going strong, as demonstrated in this lively autumnal portrait.

Directed by his wife Cindy Kleine, the film casually interweaves several strands: ongoing rehearsals of Gregory’s long-awaited production of Ibsen’s “The Master Builder”; juicy excerpts from past interviews, productions, and performances (including his legendary “Alice in Wonderland” and, of course, MY DINNER WITH ANDRE); an investigation into the possible Nazi connections of the Jewish Gregory’s father; a health crisis; and a touching portrait of his late-life marriage to the much younger Kleine.

Pulling it all together is Gregory himself, as ever a spellbinding conversationalist, discoursing wittily and passionately on acting, storytelling, shamanism, and mortality. HDCAM video. (MR)
